Express Tool & Die received national certification as a Women's Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Great Lakes Women's Business Council, a regional certifying partner of the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

WBENC's national standard of certification implemented by the Great Lakes Women's Business Council is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women.

By including women-owned businesses among their vendors, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier/vendor diversity programs.



The most obvious benefit of doing business with an WBE is the tax breaks. Federal tax breaks are in place for companies who use WBEs to purchase supplies, parts and materials. Plus, tax liabilities are lowered for companies who utilize WBEs that supply services or labor to any project that's funded by federal or state grants and loans. State tax incentives include tax credits for contractors and subcontractors using WBEs. You can apply for additional special tax incentives depending on the contract you hold.
